TV interview for the Nottingham Creative Reactions Project 2017

Helping academics and researchers make an impact.

Taking academics into bars, students out to community events and artists into science festivals; I train S.T.E.M. researchers on how to make an impact with their non-scientist audiences. Oh, and I also produce all manner of events in which to put them to work.




  • I offer public engagement training targeted to those working in science, technology, engineering & maths (S.T.E.M.) fields.
  • From early career S.T.E.M. researchers to established academics and those in industry, I run a wide variety of sessions from:
  • An introductory Public Engagement 101
  • Audience specific presentation skills
  • How to develop talks, activities and more.

Get in touch with me to discuss building sessions around your specific needs.

  • Developing or running a S.T.E.M. engagement project? I advise on all aspects of project management from planning to implementation.
  • With a wealth of experience running large scale public engagement events and working with professional funding bodies, I can help you: 
    • Develop your proposals.
    • Reach the audiences you want to engage.
    • Advise on practical logistics.
    • Build evaluation into your project to know you've be successful.



For International Womens' Day 2017, and ahead of British Science Week 2017, STEM-ON members Shalaka Kurup, Tulsi Patel & Tolu Taiwo took part in a panel talk about life as women of colour working in S.T.E.M. following a screening of the Hidden Figures film. This event was organised by the Nottinghamshire British Science Association & Nottingham Broadway Cinema.
